The new collection of beautiful, peaceful songs from Manchester's Poodleplay Arkestra. A new release from Poodleplay Arkestra is always something to look forward to. Their music, although influenced by many, Jon Hassell and Brian Eno among them, inhabits a special place all of its own. Guitars, piano, strings and soundscapes cascade around you. A wonderful piece of work. More at poodleplayarkestra.bandcamp.com

After the success of Album In A Day volumes 1-3, we had to do this all over again. The enthusiastic response from listeners and everyone involved is fantastic.

A collection of songs based around guitar and fretless bass. Blissful ambience finishing with the apocalyptic post rock of 'Where I Stand'. These songs were recorded over the last few years, using different techniques and equipment for each song. All that links them is the presence of my trusty, battered, old guitar and fretless bass.

The second in the Twilight Sessions series. This is very ambient: long, drawn out pieces that evolve slowly, creating quite an emotive and evocative sound, but with a dub edge. Each piece starts as a blank canvas with no preconceived notion of where the music will go. Notes and noises are played from synths, guitar, voice and samples and fed into one or two loops which repeat and layer and decay. These loops can be quite long, so as a performer I can add notes as I see fit, but only have a...

After the success, earlier this year, of his mini-album, 'Eleven', comes the fantastic new release from one of London's most original and interesting producers. Ketsa - 'The X Inside' is a great album. You can hear Ketsa's influences in there but the intricate beats, the ambience, the worldiness and whole warm feeling of these recordings is hard to define. This is a smart album and your ears want you to download it.

The second release on BFW from SineRider is a less ambient affair than his last release, 'Binary Flowers'. 'December Embers' has guitars and singing and has much more of a post-rock feel to it. The warm ambience is still there, but this is fairly different.

Ho! Ho! Ho! It's that time of year again. Nights are growing darker. There's a chill in the air and turkeys and their vegetarian equivalents are starting to get nervous. Earlier this year, we put a call out for submissions of new festive and wintery music of any genre for this, our fourth BFW Christmas Album. The response has been phenomenal - 36 songs by artists around the world, and a nice mix of styles. Tracklist: 01. When We Live - Frozen In Time (Feat. Alexander Wieser) 02. The Amygdala -...

The second release on BFW from Vladislav Buben is nothing short of wonderful. The hypnotic drones that appear on 'Emblem' are there, but now coupled with fantastic world beats and deep bass lines. In his own words: When winter goes away and spring comes along, on a dark evening, when the sky is ink-blue and the lemon-looking moon shines upon the landscape, the last snow - the final winter trace - starts falling. It covers the ground with a white blanket and the local cat strolling across the...

The sixth album in the Twilight Sessions series. Like the first five volumes, this is an album of completely improvised, live ambient music. Each piece starts as a blank canvas. The music is built around a long, slowly decaying loop. Notes are added from synths, guitar, voice and clarinet and over time, they built into grand, atmospheric soundscapes. Sometimes, however, I forget to press record when something wonderful is created. On these occasions, I can only capture the loop that has already...

Bing Satellites returns with the fourth release in as many months. 'Time' is an ambient album but it is emotive and psycheldelic, touched by Bing's love of shoegaze and experimental music. The sounds on this album come from a wide variety of sources - synths, laptop, guitar, clapped ot old keyboards and objects lying around Bing's studio in Manchester.

Prolific ambient musician Bing Satellites returns with an album of slow, drifting ambient music. In his own words - Record everything! That is the rule I try to live by. The music on this album was recorded in one week in March 2012, a week when I was rather unwell and thought I had done very little other than take my cold medicine and watch TV in bed. I played a few soothing tunes on the piano (well, my facsimile of a piano) from time to time, but it came as quite a surprise to find that all...

Bing Satellites starts the year with an EP of ambient piano songs. These four songs are based around generative loops where each note is played on a loop, the length of that loop varying according to its pitch. They are sparse and beautiful.
